Cross fit sucks. The program doesn’t make sense, many people end up over- training which defeats the #1 rule in any training program (safety first).
My first view of crossfit was a clip on a local news channel of a 16 year old doing a crossfit routine, implementing a power clean exercise but the technique made me shake my head in disbelief. As she dropped the weight to return back to rest position,she didnt return the barbell properly and just dropped it on the way down without any control ,can’t be healthy on those shoulder joints..See you at the physical therapist clinic in 3 months.
Sorry after seeing that I will never be a crossfit fan boy. This clip is much worse, I know there might be some good trainers but if the program is bad, then everything else falls as well.
You know the saying ” you can’t make good wine out of bad grapes”.
Thanks for sharing the clip,too funny.

Matt- thanks for disagreeing in a respectful manner. I will agree to do the same.
Mike, I respectfully disagree. Crossfit competitions have clear objective standards and scoring systems, so if the Olympics count things such as curling, table tennis, archery, speed walking, etc..as sports then crossfit is certainly a sport as well. It may be “the sport of exercise” but it is a sport nonetheless.
And while the top crossfit athletes may have a history of doing gymnastics / playing other sports, they still consider themselves to be crossfitters and for the most part train using some sort of crossfit methodology adopted to their own needs.
